Kurt’s Boyfriend on Glee Could Be Just About Anyone

It may be the biggest gay mystery of our time: Who exactly will be playing Kurt's boyfriend on Glee? At first, it seemed like the perennially loose-lipped cast and crew were hinting that new transfer Chord Overstreet would fill the role, but executive producer Ryan Murphy swiftly added mop-topped viral video star Darren Criss to the mix as a potential red herring. Now, Murphy tells E!: "[Kurt's love interest] is definitely not Chord ... and the new character is certainly an option. I'm not sure how soon I want to [reveal] that information because it's such a big storyline of the year — I want there to be some surprises. But Darren has a major, major arc. He sort of becomes Kurt's mentor and then maybe love — he had to leave his own school because of bullying and goes to an all-boys academy and finds acceptance because that school has a no-bullying, zero-tolerance policy." Anyway, it's totally still Chord. (Next up: When will Lady Abs find love?) [E!]
